What's going on, everybody? It's your boy, Ray.
And welcome to my little show here called DPMNE Sports Talk Live on SportsCastr If the New England Patriots Damian Harris turns out to be the running back that we all hope he will be, could build ballots. Check.
Consider trading James White.
The Houston Astro fans think they understand what it's like to be universally hated, But is there really any other team or fan base hated more than the New England Patriots? I'm gonna answer those questions in a whole lot more because here on DP and we like football.
We like football season and everything that goes with it.

If you want to watch this entire show, join me over on SportsCastr.
I've left the link in the description.
Let me start off by saying this.
What I'm talking about today is not a rumor or some piece of breaking news.
This entire idea is me.
Just spitball in an idea.
But I covered an article on yesterday's show by Zachary Downing on musket fire, and he was talking about the 2019 draft class.
And in that article he mentioned that if Damian Harris can replicate what James White can do in the passing game, then the Patriots could consider trading James White.
The cool went like this quote.
If we're hiding a weapon in Damian Harris, then the team has a lot of options at the running back position, including some trade potential depending on the types of talent hairs brings.
It pains me to say this, but James White would bring valuable trade offers if Harris could compare in the cat past catching game end quote.
You know, this really kind of made me sit back and think, What if? But would the Patriots consider trading away one of Tom Brady's favorite outlets for a second year running back? That was basically red shirt in his rookie year.
I guess the short answer would be Bill Belichick has no issues moving on from running backs in the past.
Dion Lewis, Liguera Blunt, Shane Marine.
They were all important members of the Patriots offense.
They all won Super Bowls with the Patriots, and not one of them plays for the Patriots anymore.
So why would James White be any different and you know as Patriot fans, we're always gonna have a bit of an emotional attachment to James White.
I know I don't know about you guys, but I'll never forget.
Super Bowl 51 watching Tom Brady and James White just tearing up the Atlanta Falcons defense together, along with Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola, amassing the greatest comeback in professional sports history but also as a Patriots fan.
And I think you would agree where we're used to seeing fan favorites unceremoniously ushered out of town on a whim.
Guys like Danny Amendola, Wes Welker, Randy Moss, Liguera Blunt, Malcolm Butler.
They've all left New England, and what we have to acknowledge is they all left New England and that resulted in the Patriots winning multiple Super Bowls.
Bill Belichick doesn't make emotional decisions.
He's cold, he's calculated, and he's gonna make decisions that are based on what's best for the team.
And if Belle Check believes that Harris could do a decent job in the run and passing game and he can good get good value for James White, I mean, guys, I could very easily see Bala check pulling off that kind of trade.
You know, the Patriots have been linked to stuff our stuff and digs.
And you think about some of the packages they could put together a combination of James White of Mohammad Sanu and maybe a draft pick.
It could be kind of enticing from Minnesota to try to add to and tryto gonna build on offense and what they're gonna lose.
Losing stuff in digs and look, The reality is the The Patriots could just stick with James White, and he can continue to be a go to for Tom Brady.
And really, if Harrison does pan out, then the Patriots have the option of just kind of moving on from Rex Burkhead.
And when you think about it, that actually seems like the more likely scenario.
Then Bill Ballot Jack moving on from James White.
But it is an interesting thought to think about again.
I think that there's times that we can we could become too attached to a player.
We think about what they've done for the Patriots in the past.
We think about the things they've accomplished, and we don't kind of think aboutthe long term future and the success that the team could have without them.
I mean it's easy to look at situations where the Patriots lost players.
You could very easily turn around and say, Look, Rob Gronkowski retired and the Patriots got eliminated in the wild card round. It's true.
Rob Gronkowski got injured for the season and the Patriots one.
No, sorry 51 not 49.
Martel's Bennett stepped in and things worked out.
So I think we need to be a little bit cautious when we think about when we when we try to make emotional decisions, you know? And, uh, I read, Ah, great article today talking about Danny Amendola.
And I'm gonna probably cover it tomorrow, I think.
But basically what it was covering, this is Amendola was never going to come back to the Patriots.
That was, you know, basically the whole gist of it.
And when when they got broken down for us, you realized how emotional some of the Patriot fans were thinking that Amendola would come back and things will be great.
But switching gears for a second.
Houston Astro fans have been really feeling the hate lately, and, um, they I think it's kind of cute, actually, that they are pretending like they actually understand what it's like to be hated as a fan base.
You know, the Houston Astros are cheaters.
Their championship is *****ed, half their fan base are ferociously defending their team, and the other half are embracing the hate.
How familiar does that sound if you're a New England Patriots fan, Brandy Smith posted a picture of her rocking and Astros had in a shirt with big, bold letters saying, Hate us, and it's really kind of sweet that they feel like people hate them as much as they think they do.
And look, as much as people may pretend that they don't want their franchise to be hated, that they want everybody to love them.
The truth is, if your team isn't hated than they're not really relevant.
Look at Kansas City Chiefs fans.
They are so desperately trying to get people to hate their team.
But the truth is, people hate the fan base.
I don't think we hate the team that much, and there's a big difference between both again.
It's the relevant versus the irrelevant.
You know what? I'm trying to prepare for my show on sportscast every night.
It's very difficult for me to find options in news that aren't Patriots related.
And it can get frustrating sometimes.
Considering I've started making this transition over to talking about all football.
I'm like, Man, I just can't talk about the Patriots all night.
You know my fans who aren't Patriots fans.
They're gonna want me to talk about other things.
And every second story is a Patriot story.
You know, Cincinnati Bengals players and their fans.
They're starting a band together and and bracing the hate because of the whole job.
Borough nonsense, you know, in the sad part about that is and what they don't seem to understand.
People don't hate the Bangles.
The people are calling you losers.
That's not hate. That's just sad.
Let me tell you what hate is.
I was at a concert in Toronto, Canada.
I was wearing a Patriots hat at least 20 times at night by at least 20 different people.
Somebody yelled out to me, Patriots suck! Beijing didn't soccer.
Obviously, they were just coming off their Super Bowl 51 win.
But people just hate the Patriots.
I'm writing a book about being a Patriots fan, and I asked my buddy, the bridge chief.
He's a Kansas City Chiefs video maker.
I asked him to give me a quote about why he hates the Patriots.
Let me tell you what he said. Quote.
Why do I hate Patriot fans? Did you ever remember that rich kid at school who always got what he wanted always came to school with the latest fashions and toys that not even Santa could afford? The teachers loved him because in their eyes he never puts a wrong foot forward.
And he's always polite.
But you know that as soon as that bell rings, he's gonna be the most annoying, obnoxious little beep, and you're just gonna want to kick that out of him.
But you couldn't because you always play the victim and you get shafted for it.
End quote the Brit chief.
What did I do when he sent me that quote? I laughed.
I thanked him for that quote, and I moved on with my life.
You know, I know I haven't seen anything short of that creative.
It's not that far from what has been said to me for the good part of 15 years.
If you are a Patriots fan, you have no choice but to embrace the hate because we hear it every day and we wear it on our sleeves.
Onley teams like the New York Yankees, the Lakers, maybe the Montreal Canadians.
Fans understand what it's like to be hated, but even Montreal hasn't been relevant since 1993.
I don't include the Celtics, Bruins and Red Sox because it's normally the same fan bases the Patriots.
We'll just say Boston in general, but you hate the Patriots fans because you hate the team.
You hate the team because they're champions.
And at some point, the Patriots probably beat up on your team.
The Astros Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, my hometown, Toronto Raptors, the team I cheer for or whatever other one hit wonders that are out there your time.
Our time will pass, the hate will fade.
And yet Patriots anger will live forever.

I'm sorry, but I've been trying to make a transition for a while to get into other sports.
And I'm starting with baseball because that's what I love.
And since I've started working with SportsCastr is given the opportunity to open up some more ideas.
But still to come on DPMNE alive on SportsCastr.
Tonight, we're gonna look at a report that the NFL players leadership is divided on the proposed C B A they could vote on it by Wednesday.
We're gonna look at another report that the NFL in the N F L P A have pushed the franchise tag window back two days.
Well, let's look at what to make of these stuff on Biggs to the Patriots rumors the Jets have signed former Redskins wide receiver Josh Docks in and just the 40 Niners makes sense as a destination for Taylor Gabriel.
That's what we're gonna be talking about for the rest of the SportsCastr show.

Click the link and check out the show for everybody else is still watching on SportsCastr.
Let's continue on with this little slice of show here.
Hope that everybody's doing well on this beautiful Sunday night.
So I know I've been talking about the collective bargaining agreement a lot for the last couple of days, but it's really becoming relevant thing.
I ignored it for most of the season, even though I knew it kind of hung over us.
I believe the C B.
A has as an impact on a lot of things.
Obviously, if they can't get a new one done by the end of the 2020 season.
There is an opportunity for a work stoppage, which means there's a possibility there's no season in 2021 r a shortened season, a replacement players or something of that sort.
I've also predicted that if they do put a work stoppage in 2020 that will be the end of Tom Brady in the National Football League.
I don't think that he can miss an entire season and then come back in 2022.
But Mike Allesandro from the score came out today and percent that this report coming out, that the NFL player leadership is divided on the proposed C B A, and they could vote as soon as Wednesday.
So it goes like this.
NFL player leadership continues to be divided over the notion of a 17 game regular season ahead of the upcoming vote on a proposed new collective bargaining agreement, sources told ESPN is Jeremy Fowler.
Players were split into three categories when discussing the proposal, according to Fowler.
There were those who will never want 17 games, those who will accept the terms of the deal with tweaks and those who approved the proposal in its current form.
Representatives held a conference call on Friday and they were initially set to vote on the deal, but getting the 2/3 majority in support of it wasn't certain.
According to Fowler.
The players union postponed the voting as a result and will meet with league officials Tuesday at the NFL combine in Indianapolis.
The union could vote as early as Wednesday, but it hopes to continue negotiating with team owners.
However, the owners reportedly aren't interested in negotiating renegotiating their offer.
The NFL Players Association executive committee voted 65 against a proposed TB A on Friday.
The new offer now goes to the 32 man board of Player representatives, which is responsible for the final vote.
2/3 of the representative must approve the new terms with the full Membership Comm pass to deal with a simple majority.
And it's interesting the position that the owners are putting the Players Association in, especially since you got teams like here's my thing with the owners now and now the owner to start in here take me So now they have no interest in renegotiating the proposal that they send out to the players basically saying It's this way or the highway.
You guys want to strike, Go ahead And the words of Jarvis Landry, Make sure you get your XFL packages together, but I'm saying you're going.
If you ever split amongst the representatives of you, have a split amongst people about getting this new C B a done.
Why don't you just do a couple of tweaks? You can get the majority you can put it through.
I mean, some of the things that the players are that the owners have conceded to would help the players.
And I know who am I right? Who the hell is Ray route to come out? Who's doesn't play in the National Football League, doesn't play Professional football has never come close to having the talent to play professional football.
Who am I to come out and give the players advice what they want to do? Well, as a working class citizen, you know who gets up and goes to work every day.
I mean, and who knows what the deal says? But I don't know.
I'm getting worried.
I'm getting worried there's gonna be no thing because of it.
It looks like they are making some changes to some stuff.
Alex Chip in of the scores reporting that the NFL P A in the NFL will push the franchise tag window back two days because of it.
Since the NFL in the NFL Players Association has agreed to push the window back for franchise in transition tanks to be applied by two days, sources told the NFL Network's Tom Pulecio and Ian Rapoport, teams will be able to start assigning tenders on February 27th instead of February 25th and have until March 12th to use them rather than March 10th.
Clubs may use both tags this offseason because the clause in the final year of the existing collective bargaining agreement teams will be allowed on.
Lee won tag of the NFL in NFL P A agreed to a new C B A.
Players are expected to vote to approve the or rejected CB on Tuesday or Wednesday, and owners have already voted in favor for it.
The Dallas Cowboys in Tennessee Titans will be among the teams in a position used bolt tags of this new C B A doesn't get done in time and obviously one of the reasons that they're pushing this back by two days is in order for the players to be able to vote on the new C B A.
So, like there's a whole lot of stuff happening around the collective bargaining agreement and it's actually really, really interesting.
There's a lot of good articles out there.
If you all can connect with Joe, he goes by yon ti.
I think he's on the show right now.
Connect with him on Twitter, Man, the guy's just full of knowledge when it comes to the c b A.
At least he's got great links and resources to stop.
You sent me Stop that I've shared on the show.
And you know, any of you guys have fallen on social media.
There's anything you want me to cover, and you want to send me some links or some stuff, man.
Um, you know, by all means go ahead and ah, and send it over because I use it.
I just I just shared one of Joe's things last night, but I don't know, and I think that the C B A is is hindering some of the things that some of the teams are doing Joe made a really good point.
Ah, little while ago that he thinks the Patriots might be holding off from doing anything with Tom Brady right now because they're waiting to see the collective bargaining agreement.
At the end of the day, if someone gets approved, the salary cap could go up by 15 or $20,000 rather than the Tower 15 or $20 million rather than the proposed 10 million right now.
So, yeah, there's a lot of things that could happen going into this now.
Another thing that's been going on is this whole Stefan takes to the Patriots. Rumor.
And I gotta be honest, you guys that I don't know exactly where it came from.
It's something that okay, I didn't know.
I know where it came from now, but at the time, I was like, You know, I knew that there was a Patriot Fans wanted wanted the pages to trade for stuff in digs last year, but there was nothing saying to us that Bill Belichick was interested in that.
You know, it's not like we're reading rumors pages.
Way was just Isis.
Patriot fans were coming and said, Hey, man, trade for stuffing digs.
And now he's unhappy in Minnesota again.
Well, apparently, this all came down because a radio station in Minnesota said that the Patriots could package Mohammed Sunu a first round in the third round draft pick for Stefan Diggs.
That's where all this conversation has come from.
And Patrick Morgan, the musket fire, actually good. Pretty deep.
Dive into this today and I want to go through it and I'll get my feet back on him and it's called what to make of the staff fund aches.
The Patriots rumors basic, with buzz growing about a potential trade that would send Stefan digs in the New England Patriots.
How exactly could such a transaction happen? The NFL is a crazy business on Lee in professional football.
Can you find a situation where a 26 year old superstar wide receiver who was entering the third year of a five year, $72 million contract extension with a franchise that made the playoffs in three consecutive seasons and that player is the subject of major trade rumors? Such is the case with staffing digs of the Minnesota Vikings.
Digs reportedly deleted all of his Vikings related social media content over the past couple of days, setting off a firestorm on where else Social media regarding what it could possibly mean.
The situation is complicated by the fact that Digs has been quite open about his frustrations with the Vikings, despite the fact that he signed with the team back in 2018 on a lucrative extension.
He's made it clear time and time again that he doesn't really appreciate plane in Minnesota or went for whatever reason.
It's strange because he's still very well played, paid.
He's certainly appreciated as one of the top two receivers on the team and one of the top receivers in the league.
He's an has an excellent supporting cast with him and his quarterback coaches and running back, not to mention a terrific defense.
And he made it known he wanted to play elsewhere Justus recently as this time last year.
Naturally, one of the major players in the persistent rumors surrounding digs dissatisfaction with the Vikings is the New England Patriots.
The pat seemed to always lack a prototypical number one receiver, the kind of outside threat that other franchises having Julio Jones and A.
Green that DeAndre Hawkins and digs himself.
None of this is meant to disparage Julian Edelman, who is a terrific number one receiver in his own right.
But Edelman is best uses an underneath weapon who can break ankles and hearts with exceptional route running.
He's more of the move the chains and score the touchdowns, and that's the way he's always been.
The pats of the Pats have swung and struck out with a number of receivers over the years, including Josh Gordon.
More recently, even their successful ones, like Brandin Cooks Randy Moss, Brandon Lloyd, Malcolm Mitchell, et cetera.
They were very short lived.
All those guys played phenomenally for the Patriots, but none of them were on the team for very long.
Good stuff and digs be the guy to change all that New England needs someone rather than Philip other than Phillip Door Set or Mohammed Sunu, who can open up the offense further in 2020 digs, would no doubt at an element of speed route running, savvy in home run threat capability to his offense in a flash.
Now it's just a matter of whether or not the Patriots could afford to dangle it packaged towards the Vikings that might excite them to part ways with digs.
If you're Minnesota, you're not really inclined to part with such a productive receiver who still just barely entering his prime.
Unless you think he's going to be here.
He's not going to be around much longer, or he makes it clear he's going to demand a trade or sit out.
Allah lay beyond Bel Antonio Brown.
As we've seen in recent years, U.
CZ Today's Jack White of Viking Wire recently shared a local Minnesota radio station suggestion that the Patriots trade Seenu in 2 20 21st round 2020 picks, UM, first round in the third round to the Vikings in exchange for digs.
Well, most of the Internet laughed at the notion.
Seenu was far from a pretty impressive in 2019 in his debut for New England.
Many others consider the truth of it all.
Digs is that unhappy and unwilling to contribute to the Vikings anyways? Maybe getting to hire draft picks before him, plus a serviceable receiver on the cheap, might be worth it.
This is all speculation.
Still, obviously, digs deleting his team photos and social media doesn't mean that he is gonna play in Minnesota and 2020.
It doesn't even mean that he's necessarily unhappy.
Still, this is a situation the monitor monitor as we get closer and closer to free agency the draft in the start of the new season.
Stay tuned, Patriots fans.
I mean, that was a lot.
And I thought that he covered it really well, and he brought in a lot of really interesting information when it came to digs.
But I think the biggest one that we got out of that was there's nothing substantial saying that this is even gonna happen.
Every article we read that throws out some sort of Hey, man, this is what I think it happened.
Hey, man, the pages were gonna do this.
Hey, Minnesota will accept that for To me, it sounds like we don't even know what either team is thinking.
Do the Patriots than they can afford stuff in digs.
Do they want to hear this bill about checking Tom Brady Want to move on from Mohammed Sunu? I mean, we assume that they do, but we don't know for sure we could try.
We can try and predict and pretend like we know, but I'm going to assume that 95% of the people who come here and watch me and are one of my constant viewers that you're just a fan just like me.
You're not involved in the Patriot system.
You're not in the locker room.
You're not having heart to hearts with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady and Robert Craft and figuring things out.
And I'm kind of just sitting here now like man.
Like, when do we start forgetting about all the speculation? When do we just focus on things that are actually being reported things that are actually being that are actually true? Do I want the Patriots to trade for stuff? And Diggs, Who the hell wouldn't if you're a Patriots fan, right? I mean, to me, that just seems to make the most amount of sense.
There's your number one.
I'd give up a first in the third for digs.
He's young, he's worth that.
He's 1000 times an upgrade over anybody was on the team last year.
He's a guaranteed thing, as we've seen with the Patriots and Sony Michelle in the Kill Harry.
Nothing's been guaranteed yet, so I think It'll just be interesting to see what they do. Go in Ford.
Let's see if they want to make this kind of move stain in the A F C East O the New York Jets, the bottom feeders of the of the A F C East, even though I think Miami followed behind them.
I think Miami's gonna be a better position than Jets the next couple years.
They made a move.
I think it was two days ago signing former Redskins wide receiver Josh Toxin Spencer Abraham.
The Jets wire wrote about it.
So the New York Jets have added another weapon to their offense.
The team announced Saturday that it has signed former Redskins and Vikings wide receiver Josh Docks in docks.
In was a first round pick out of TCU by the Redskins in 2016 and three seasons with the Redskins docks and made 81 catches for 102,100 yards in eight touchdowns.
The 27 year old was a surprise cut by the Redskins this past September docks and ended up being signed by the Vikings after being waived.
But he only appeared in one game and recorded no stats.
The Jets of a lot of uncer*****y, a wide the wide receiver position.
Their top receivers.
Robbie Anderson is a free agent and could be out of his on his way out of New York.
Meanwhile, kids Quincy, You know who has major health concerns and **** it, the the Marius Thomas is also a free agent.
The one stable at wide receiver is Jamison Crowder in the slot victim in Smith and Braxton.
Barrios are under contract as well.
There's no risk in signing docks into a deal.
Either performs well in training camp.
It makes the roster or he gets cut with no harm as a Patriots fan.
I mean, I think we've had this conversation 100 million times in the past.
Oh, give him a try.
If he doesn't work, no harm, no foul.
Hey, I mean, I think we've seen how that doesn't work out for the Patriots, especially in that sort of on offensive perspective.
I mean, we love to look you guys to be like man.
Look how many times Bill Belichick brings in an offensive weapon is and nobody where he is.
And Brady and him, they turned him around.
And, oh yeah, ride, ride, Ride.
Well, Wes Welker, Danny M and Zola.
Chris Hogan, who was actually pretty solid. And Buffalo.
You don't get a nickname like 7 11 without having some sort of skill, right? Because I don't I don't think we want to make the list of Maurice Harris and Dontrelle in men.
Kendrell Thompkins, Dobson, the merriest Thomas, Antonio Brown, Josh Gordon and everybody has failed to New England.
Brandon The drop.
Actually, the fell had a pretty solid, UM, a pretty solid 2014 season with the Patriots.
I shouldn't I shouldn't go there, but I mean good for the Jazz.
Stir the no harm, no foul move.
I just think you gotta be cautious.
I know there's probably unrealistic Jet fans, just like there are unrealistic Patriots fans who believe Docks is gonna come into New York.
He's made 81 catches in three years.
He's no superstar.
You know, I think most teams which they were this an Francisco 40 Niners because the San Francisco 40 Niners not a point where they're just looking to fill holes and make minor adjustments as Patriot fans.
We were so used to that for so many years, and now we're seeing other teams kind of Madison.
The 40 Niners wired made it think today.
Talking about the 40 Niners makes sense as a destination for wide receiver Taylor Gabriel.
So the Chicago Bears they're set to release wide receiver Taylor Gabriel and cornerback Prince amok amok.
Kumara, according to ESPN, is Adam Schefter, with a relatively unproven Receiving Corp going into the 2020 offseason, Gabriel is the kind of free agent of the 40 Niners could target in a year where they have some holes to fill and not a ton of money to spend.
Speedy wide receiver played only nine games last season while battling injuries, but prior to that, he had put together a few productive years in the NFL.
He got his start in the prose, is an undrafted free agent with the Browns in 2014.
When the 40 Niners had coach Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Cleveland, Gabriel had a strong rookie campaign in Shanahan's offense with 36 catches for 621 yards and one touchdown.
3 yards per reception was the highest mark of his career.
You didn't see that same success in 2015 the years Shanahan left Cleveland to become the Falcons offensive coordinator.
Gabriel caught 28 balls for 241 yards and no touchdowns and 13 games.
And, you know, and then he revitalizes career the next season by reuniting with Shanahan.
When the Falcons claimed Gabriel off waivers from Cleveland in 2016 Gabriel had 35 catches for 579 yards and a career high six touchdowns.
His production again fell off the next year when Shanahan left to become the 40 Niners head coach.
And through his 1st 4 seasons, Gabriel had 71 catches for 1200 yards and seven touchdowns two of those years with coach Shanahan, and he had 61 catches, 619 yards and one touchdown.
Without him, the Bear sign Gabriel and 2018 to a four year deal worth $28 million.
Head coach Matt Nagy got big time production of Gabriel in their first season together, the receivers set career highs with 67 receptions for 688 yards injury.
Last season, limited him to just 29 catches for 3 53 but he did score four touchdowns in nine games.
Chicago's only working with about $18 million in caps based going into the offseason, according to Over the Cap and releasing Gabriel saved the Bears about $4.
5 million in cap space.
5 million this season, which is the range where the 40 Niners might be able to afford out of productive receiver to the roster.
Assuming he command commanded that same type of deal on the open market, San Francisco can clear some of the space by releasing Marquise Goodwin and saving 3.
Gabriel uM offers the speed element and stretch D and stretches defense's vertically, but he's also shifty enough to create space in the short and intermediate areas for the passing game.
The 40 Niners badly need an additional speed element in their receiving corpse, and Goodwin's last two seasons haven't been consistent enough to rely on him for a significant role in the passing game.
Gabriel is history with Shanahan offense, and his strong 2018 season provide optimism that he can step in right away and make the 49 receivers corpse even better.
40 Niners won't have a ton of cash to go out and spend in free agency, but smaller, prudent moves to tweak the roster are necessary.
And Gabriel certainly fits the mold.
I mean, I think that's a good move.
If you are the 40 Niners, I really do.
It's You need to add guys who can come in and bring in production to a team.
They're gonna lose Emmanuel Sanders, and they gotta bring in guys who are gonna come in and be productive and not cost a whole lot of money.
You know, one of the reasons that Bill Belichick's had so much success in New England is his ability to consistently spend less and get more.
You think about guys like Danny Shelton, who the patron paid $1 million last season.
He was the ultimate value of the season.
Or actually, I mean Jamie Collins.
What I think at the end of the day he made like 2.
5 million and incentives the only like a guaranteed veteran's minimum and after Bella check dies, he's so able to find guys and pay them little money and get huge results from them.
And I think that Gabriel could be a guy to do that for San Francisco, who doesn't need a you know, a Stephon Diggs or doesn't need to go out and find this great big name receiver.
They just need a guy who could help stretch the field a little bit, even if it's not completely consistent.
He's had success with Shanahan, and I think it could work out just fine.
Our guys, That's my chauffeur tonight.
Take every tune in thinking a SportsCastr who gives me the opportunity to come out here each and every night and talk to football fans of Paige, your fans and just NFL vans and fans from all over the world.
Thank you, all of you who watch all my stuff and connect with me on Twitter and Instagram and all that.
